Copying files from Anroid/camera not working

I am using FreeCommander XE 2017 Build 740 32-bit public on a Win 10 64 bit i7 system. I recently noticed that I can use FreeComander to browse to a USB device like my Samsung S4, or a Canon camera, and go through directories, but I can not copy files from those devices over to my PC. I'm sure I use...

Drives listed twice in Windows 10

I am using version XE 2016 build 715 32-bit public on a new install of Windows 10 64 bit. In Windows Explorer I saw that every drive (I have several) is listed twice (once under 'this PC', and then again one level up). I found a post online about a regedit change to change that. It worked. FreeComma...

Columns auto-resize despite settings

I am using FC XE 2014 build 650 on Win 7 64 bit and Win 8.1. I display a single tree/file pane, make a file view column smaller, then click on a file, rename it (shortening the name), press return, and the columns resize as if set to auto re-size. The setting View - File/Folder list - Max Column wid...

How to setup FreeCommander to be default file browser

I am using FC XE 2014 build 650.

Is there a way to set it up, so that it is sort of the "default" file browser instead of Windows Explorer ?

For example, in another program, a pic viewer or whatever, I can right click on a directory and select "Open".
It opens the directory int Windows Explorer.

Dragging a PDF file (via icon) opens mini preview

When I try to drag a PDF file somewhere, FreeCommander XE opens a mini preview of the file next to it as I move it. On my system, it then makes it hard to see where it is I am moving it to.

How can that be disabled ?

I am using XE version 2014 build 650 on a Windows 8 64 bit system.

New install - can't recall how to display folder size in FC

How does one set up FC XE version 0.0.0.621 to display folder sizes ?

I had done this in the regular version - but prefer the great improvements of XE.

Re: Can you stop moving ?

XE Version 0.0.0.609 appears to have added some bizzare behavior. When initially beginning a search (while search is underway) the "Search files/folders" window is highly compressed. Very small. WHY ? Why is the size defaulted to small all the time. Ok, so assign it a size by pulling a number out of...

Can you stop moving ?

Is there an option to set the "Search files/folders" window to stop jumping around the desktop ?
If I move it over there, I moved it because I thought it would be nice there. Why not just leave it
there ?

Re: Is it possible to sort by file type ? IN FILE SEARCH RE

Hello - it is just in the search results window from what I saw.

I looked at the XE download page ... it is dated 1/12/2012 ... I assume I'm using that version as I installed less then 4 months ago I believe.

You must not have been talking about the XE version .... ?

Thanks

Set Windows 7 to use FreeCommander XE in place of Explorer

I searched the forums here to try to find out a straight forward means of configuring Windows 7 (I'm running the 64 bit version) to use FreeCommander XE (version 0.0.0.591) in place of Windows Explorer as the DEFAULT file manager. I found plenty of explanations - but they all seemed to be for the NO...

Added column lost after restart - how to save it ??

I am using FC XE 0.0.0.591 on Windows 7 64 bit.

When I add a new column to the details view, and select Save Settings from the tools menu, it does not appear to
be saved. If I exit the program and restart it the added column is gone.

Am I doing something wrong ?
